Versailles (ver-sigh-yay) is an institution – one of the mainstays of Miami's Cuban gastronomic scene. Try the excellent black-bean soup or the fried yucca before moving onto heartier meat and seafood plates. Older Cubans and Miami’s Latin political elite still love coming here, so you’ve got a real chance to rub elbows with Miami’s most prominent Latin citizens.

If time is tight, stop in for Cuban coffee and pastries at the buzzing bakery attached.
